Plants with Impact Summary

Plants with Impact by John Kelly

This practical guide to plants which catch the eye and create a lasting impression in any garden, however small, discusses trees and shrubs, annuals and perennials, bulbs, roses, scented plants and more. Their outstanding qualities - dramatic foliage, striking form, brilliant flower colour - are highlighted, together with their more intangible aspects, which nevertheless contribute to the overall charisma. These include qualities such as elegance, the ability to create a specific atmosphere and - most arresting of all - the intoxicating power of scent. Through the use of related planting, the author explains how to integrate star performers into the garden scene, creating dramatic effects whilst at the same time allowing strong characters to live peacefully together. He also looks at the part played by features such as arches, pergolas, paths and lawns, rock gardens and ponds, in showing off plants to their best advantage, and at the importance of correct cultivation in maintaining a stunning display from year to year. A gazetteer and planting plans help to make plant selection easier.
